Editor’s note: Georgia Pines is a new feature on IAG and in James Magazine where we will take a closer look at some of the less-publicized goings on from around the state.
The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office has announced the results of a wildly successful narcotics sting in which more than $325,000 worth of drugs were taken off Macon streets. The operation, termed “Operation Extended Stay,” focused around a group of eight seedy motels where dealers gathered to exchange marijuana, meth, and heroin. One sheriff’s investigator called it a “Wal-Mart for drugs,” where both street sellers and distributors did business. Partnering with the FBI as well as state law enforcement officials, Bibb County sheriff’s deputies made nearly 25 arrests in their triumphant bid to clean up Macon’s streets.
